I have finished Mass Effect 3, and I have got the perfect ending where:
1. Shepard lives
2. The Normandy is almost fine and is flying again
3. All the crew members are alive
Now, after the ending credits scene, the game automatically opened just before Priority: Cerberus Headquarter. Can anyone confirm if that is normal? I thought that I would be returned to the main menu.
What I expected according to what I read online is:
This ending is left opened on purpose. However, after Liara 'Shepard's romance' refused to place Shepard's name on the wall and looked to the deep, and after the Normandy launches, and after the scene where Shepard took a breath, and after some speeches from Admiral Hacket, and other scenes. Then come the credits and at last a message from BioWare Mass Effect team asking for a feedback. After all of that, the normal behavior is the game should take me to the main menu.
